TV personality Masaaki Sakai, 65, has married his partner of nine years, a woman 22 years his junior. In a fax sent from Sakai's talent management agency to media, it was revealed that the couple got married on Aug 6 at their local ward office.
Sakai is believed to have met the woman in 2002, after which they were seen on vacation together in Bali, Indonesia in 2003. Sources close to the couple said that Sakai, who has been married and divorced twice, did not remarry at the time out of consideration for his daughters, but that he now deemed them to be mature enough to accept his moving on.
According to the press release, the couple do not plan to hold a wedding reception.© Japan Today
